THEY STILL MAKE

Old House Journal - - Contents -

Ar­chi­tec­tural columns true to clas­si­cal or­ders are still made in wood, and in mod­ern ma­te­ri­als.

Clas­sic prod­ucts from Chadsworth in­clude balustrade­s, en­try­ways—and columns, load-bearing or dec­o­ra­tive. Columns for five clas­si­cal or­ders are avail­able in var­i­ous wood species, the PolyS­tone® fiber­glass com­pos­ite, and polyester resin. Ta­pered “bun­ga­low-era” columns are also sold. Cap­i­tals may be cast resin, cast plas­ter, carved wood, or polyuretha­ne. High-end clients in­clude the Smith­so­nian and Dis­ney World, but Chadsworth sells di­rect to home­own­ers, too, of­fer­ing help­ful cus­tomer ser­vice. Shown on a porch in Columbia, S.C.: plas­ter Corinthian cap­i­tals on fluted wood columns with a 26" di­am­e­ter. Chadsworth In­cor­po­rated, 1-800-columns, shop.columns.com
